Flower of the month

Your Home and Garden - - Your Garden -

It’s hard to miss roses at this time of year as they fill the air with their beau­ti­ful scent in gar­dens around the coun­try. From hy­brid teas to flori­bun­das, there are roses to suit all tastes, with new types com­ing on stream ev­ery year. While some can be tricky to grow, new-gen­er­a­tion roses such as the David Austin va­ri­eties or Flower Car­pet se­ries have less finicky habits. If you’re keen, ask the gar­den cen­tre to rec­om­mend healthy va­ri­eties suited to your re­gion. If you live in the north choose roses that are re­sis­tant to fun­gal dis­ease so you don’t have to con­stantly spray them. Reg­u­lar feed­ing and good sun are es­sen­tial for plen­ti­ful blooms.
